Time to search deep within
Not sure where to begin
Self analysis is the key
Have to think hard to see
What will eventually unfold
The story has yet to be told

I know the real me still exists
Wanting freedom she insists
Release from her self imposed cell
Heal thyself and be well
Sometimes I feel sad and down
On my face I wear a frown

That is not the real me
Spend time with me and you'll see
I am warm, gentle, and caring
With you i don't mind sharing
My innermost intimate feelings
Could fill these rooms to their ceilings

On the way to finding me again
Thanks to the support of all my friends
I see flashes of the old me
If you'd look you would see
She was really here all along
Quietly singing her life's song


Just have to say Thank You to Jeffrey for the title and challenge!!  Couldn't have done it without you, m'friend!!

Lone Wolf,

Truly powerful words you've written here!

We all need to find the real "ME" every now and then, and you have certainly done very well at that  

All my love,
Jeffrey

Lone Wolf...I can relate to this one very well. Sometimes you just need a little help to find the "real me" again. Take Care!

I found myself once... it wasn't pretty.  But I kinda like him now, I think he might even like me.    Nice poem.  Good luck finding yourself... remember to leave a note behind incase you get back before you return. =)  --Dave
